i mean, i guess it’s not the worst thing in the world, the hardest part is just trying to imagine my parents not being together after 25 years. i always strongly felt that my mother would be happier with someone she was more emotionally involved with instead of just attached out of convenience and the longevity of their relationship, and as long as they’re genuinely happy, then whatever. it just sucks and i don’t know how to pick up the phone and call my mother and talk to her anymore. a lot can change in 12 hours.
I asked my Mum why she felt the culture of Irish Americans differed from that of the Irish in England and this was her answer. I thought it was kind of ace. (via titotansey)
Oooooh, yes I like this. Irish people in general are pretty terrible at admitting our racism.
I think it depends on the area you immigrate into America though, and when. My mother’s family immigrated into Louisiana area I’m not sure what year, but my great-grandmother and her husband and children were sharecroppers with a black family. The plantation owner wouldn’t let anyone leave, and my family and theirs were close, so they all escaped together and moved to Texas and lived together until the day my grandmother died (afaik, her best friend from the other family still lives there, I think she’s still alive). I think it’s a lot easier to mingle in with America here, though. After all, a few generations out and you don’t get that accent anymore and people can’t even tell unless they know your family, so you automatically get that white privilege, but it wasn’t so easily afforded to you in some parts, especially in the deep south. Missisippi/Louisiana, there were the Whites, the Asians, Hispanics & Natives, & Black & Irish. It was definitely a waaay complex environment in the deep south in the late 1800s-1900s. If you immigrated and stayed in the north, it’s a totally different situation.
